Dirt Witch will be out soon!
I was almost 40 years old and with nothing to show for it. No partner. No career. I’d just sunk that well and truly. Now having reached a crescendo of desperation, I was pitching a tent halfway up a Turkish mountain, because I just couldn’t think what else to do.
Little did I know, I was entering another world – one without power, lights, or water. Scorpions scuttled under rocks. Wild boars’ eyes shone in the dark. Someone else lurked in the shadows between the trees too. Someone I recognised, but didn’t want to. The land, it seemed, was holding a secret.
As the weeks turned to months, I began to build a new world from sticks and mud. But as winter approached, the question loomed. How long can a person live without a house, a job and the rudiments of civilisation? And what happens to them when they do?
